Which preposition do I have to use in the following sentence.

You still can get a train to your destination at/from the station near the bank .

  • You can use either. Oct 15 '19 at 20:10
  • From means that it is departing from the station near the bank, while you can catch a train at the station near the bank.

As Michael says, both can be used. Nevertheless, what I personally feel is that it depends on the context.

I'd use from the station in the context of catching a train or if the purpose is journey. On the other hand, if I'm just telling the location of a train, I may prefer at. Compare:

Hurry, the train is at the station.


I am catching train from the station.

Thus, in your case, though both prepositions may work, I'd prefer from. We generally say catch train from New York station, don't we?


The sentence means the speaker suggests the listener that he/she should catch the train at the nearby station.I think at / from the station seem to be the correct option here.A train travel from one station to the other.But we can catch a train from / at a particular station. Both the prepositions are correct.

You still can get a train to your destination at/ from the station near the bank
